2017 Has only just started, so we’re pretty sure that you’re still determined to stick to your New Years resolutions.
If any of your resolutions has anything to do with travel, getting into shape or to improve your online privacy and security, then this blog post is a must-read! Here is a list of 6 super cool and helpful tech tools and apps that will help you to meet your 2017 goals!
Resolution 1. – Get Rid of that "Holiday" Weight
This is of course the classic and most dreadful New Years resolution of them all, but that doesn’t mean that it can’t be fun! The new running app “Zombie, Run!” was the highest grossing health and fitness App in iTunes after just two weeks. While running around in the real world, the app lets you complete missions, gather supplies, and rescue survivors while getting into shape.
The scope of the app is that only a few have survived the zombie epidemic. You are a Runner en-route to one of humanity’s last remaining outposts. They need your help to gather supplies, rescue survivors, and defend their home.
And you have another mission — one they don’t know about...
Resolution 2. - Broaden Your Horizon
Why not take the time in 2017 to learn something brand new? Like a new language! And maybe you can decide on which one after you've decided which new grounds you are going to explore according to the Resolution mentioned before. Of course there are plenty of online classes and other tech tools that can help you with that, but Rosetta Stone has been rated as the top mobile language learning app by MacWorld and already used by millions of people every day. No need to feel left out, a few minutes a day is all you need!
Resolution 3. - Become Zen
Learn to meditate in just 10 minutes a day with the Headspace app. Daily meditation has been shown to help people stress less, exercise more and even sleep better. Practice the basics of meditation and mindfulness with Take10, Headspace's free introductory series. With 10 sessions of 10 minutes each, you'll learn how to train your mind for a happier, healthier life. The design of the app is actually super cute and the teacher’s voice is truly relaxing.
Resolution 4. – Selfless Act
This resolution can’t miss from your list! It’s the selfless act of contributing to a charity or good cause that you personally care about. An example of an app that can help you achieve this goal is “Share the Meal”, designed to fight world hunger with a single tap. This United Nations World Food Program initiative allows you to feed a child in need for as little as $0.50.
Resolution 5. - Cyber Security
If cyber security was listed on your 2017 resolution list (and it should!) then obviously the first thing to do is to ensure your own online privacy. This can be very easily done by installing the ChillGlobal Google Chrome Extension or ChillGlobal Mozilla Firefox Smart-plugin to your web browser. This way you will be able to browse the Internet safely and anonymously from wherever you are in the world, even when you are using open, unprotected WiFi connections.
Resolution 6. - Explore New Grounds
No matter where you are or where you’d like to go, Skyscanner is one of the best travel comparison apps for flights, hotels and car rentals. If you already know where you want to go, you can simply put your information into the app and even if you haven’t decided exactly where you’d like to go, you can enter your local airport and set your destination to “anywhere”. Then Skyscanner will give you a list of flights to tons of different locations, organised by price.
